Is It Time to Install a New Electrical Panel?
Your electrical panel is ready to be replaced if you experience any of the following:
- Appliances not running on full power
- Lights flickering on and off
- Fuses blowing regularly
- Panel making a crackling sound
The Dangers of Do-It-Yourself Electrical Installation
Don’t try to repair or install an electrical panel or meter yourself; always schedule a service visit with a licensed electrician.
Electrical meters are typically connected directly to live power lines. Tampering with an electrical meter, even without trying to complete a repair or installation, can result in serious injury or death. The same goes for electrical panels: even if your main circuit breaker is turned off, the larger wires connected to the panel are still live with 240 volts of electricity.
It’s also illegal for anyone but a licensed electrician to work on an electrical panel or meter. To avoid getting a shock and possible fines, don’t attempt a do-it-yourself job.
Play it safe and call us for help with your electrical installation.
